This is a NEW COMPETITION where you create a display or poster that explains an item/thing/area of SCA Life in order to educate those new to our Society OR new to that SCA area.
Think back to when you were new and wished for a bit more knowledge about going to your first event (for example). What if there had been a display/poster at populace or at a demo or newcomer meeting that showed you what to expect, what to bring/wear and who to contact for more information about an event. Another example could be a display/poster for those who may not be new to the SCA but new to an SCA area like A&S competitions or target archery or event stewarding.
The purpose is to EXCITE another person about the SCA or a new to them part of the SCA, which in turn makes the SCA more fun for us all. Displays/posters can be a collage of picture that celebrate something in the SCA or a display of objects with explanation of how we use in the SCA. BE CREATIVE!! In the near future, we would like to use these displays at a demo to help recruit new members.
